@Syed I understand it makes financial sense.
I am just curious, so I will ask 3 questions and I would appreciate if you give me an answer.
So at the moment who exactly is the target group of the product since it only beams at US of A? and few countries around?
Looking at the slogan on the Story page
"Lantern is a portable satellite receiver, the only device that constantly receives free data from space, anywhere on Earth." that does not look likely if you do not get people buying in the individual regions, or have I missed something?
And then it goes:
Global. Outernet covers every continent, so you can access continuously updated content wherever you go.
So I think you may have cracked the device, the satellite technology to use, I hope it will still be solar charged, but the anywhere on the earth?
Will there be DIY kit of the Lantern?
